**How to redirect web to subfolder /web**
... to be added on Friday ..Yii 2 has the speciality that index.php is hidden in the web folder. I didnt find in the official documentation the important info - how to hide the folder, because user is not interested in it?
Our demo applicatino is placed in folder:
- C:\xampp\htdocs\basic\web\index.php
Now you will need 2 files named .htaccess
- C:\xampp\htdocs\basic\web\.htaccess
- C:\xampp\htdocs\basic\.htaccess
The first one is mentioned in chapter **Nice URLs**
The second is much simpler:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ web/$1 [L]
... it only adds the word "web" into all URLs. But first we have to remove the word from URLs. Open file config/web.php and find section **request**. Add attribute
'request' => [
  // 'cookieValidationKey' => ...
  'baseUrl' => '/basic', // add this line
Now things will work for you. But it might be needed to use different value for devel and productice web location.
I will test this and if I find problems and solutions I will add them
. **Auto redirection from login to desired URL ** --- ... to be added on Friday ...

**What to change when exporting to the Internet**
- Delete file web/index-test.php
- In file web/index.php comment you 2 first lines containing YII_DEBUG + YII_ENV
